As French and other forces conduct an offensive against rebel factions in the northern districts of Mali, Terre Des Hommes is working with the poorest and most vulnerable in the country.
Terre Des Hommes is on the ground conducting a humanitarian health service delivery program in Segou (districts of Masina and Markala). It is now scaling-up to a larger humanitarian response in this conflict-affected area including health, nutrition, clean water and child protection. Terre Des Hommes calls on civilians and especially children to be protected and for their rights to be guaranteed as the conflict in Northern Mali escalates.
Terre Des Hommes has worked in Mali for over thirty years but started to increase its interventions in 2012. Terre Des Hommes”s current portfolio of projects includes health projects, protection projects with a focus on child labor and child mobility (www.destination-unknown.org), projects addressing children’s nutritional needs and families’ incomes. With direct implementation in the humanitarian context or in support to Malian organisations, all these projects have a long term perspective and contribute for Mali to achieve its national development plan.
Terre Des Hommes work takes place in two of Mali’s eight regions (SÃ©gou and Sikasso) and in the Bamako district.
